A loan of $575 helped to buy natural fertilizers.


Nelida's story

Nélida is 34 and is a hard-working woman. She lives with her parents and siblings in their own home located in Ocoro, Colcabamba. She is characterized by having a strong expression, which she shows in her work. As a good woman, she dedicates her time and effort to agriculture. This is a trade she learned when she was very young. Currently she makes the most of it by being able to generate income for her family. She does not yet have a husband or children, but this doesn't bother her. She says, "being by the side of my siblings and parents makes me feel happy." Her main crops are corn and potatoes. She sells them in the city of Huancayo and in the capital of the country during the main growing season. Like every enthusiastic woman, she hopes to increase her profits and save money to buy her own land, since she doesn't have her own right now. She belongs to the communal bank, "Virgen Candelaria." This is her third loan with Microfinanzas Prisma, where she feels accomplished and happy. She hopes to obtain this loan to continue with her goals. She also promises to make her payments on time. She is a responsible and supportive person. Upon receiving her loan, Nélida will invest the requested money in the purchase of natural fertilizers to spread on her next potato planting.
